INTEGRATIVE EQUINE ASSISTED THERAPY
The basic structure of our integrative equine assisted therapy (EAT) program is a 3 hour session divided between an art project that changes weekly and horse time. Horse time includes feeding, grooming and bonding with our horses and donkey as well as riding lessons under the instruction of a PATH International certified instructor certified and equine specialist in mental health and learning (ESMHL), with the help of specially trained volunteers as needed.
We work with those facing varying challenges, including:
anxiety & depression
physical mobility issues
attention and behavioral issues
We can accept a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 6 students per session.
Please contact us for scheduling, rates and packages.
We aim to provide need-based financial help whenever possible.
Camila Smith, LCSW
We are thrilled that Bright Strides will now be offering Equine-Facilitated Psychotherapy (EFP) sessions* in conjunction with Elation Wellness.
Trained psychotherapist Camila Smith works with PATH Certified Instructor Danielle Roberts, using the bond between horse and human along with evidenced based treatment modalities to enhance wellness, treat underlying psychiatric conditions and develop coping skills.
Sessions are available individually or in group format and tailored to each participant's emotional needs and goals.
*EFP sessions may be billed through health insurance
